You're welcome Matt!
Von Richthofen or the Red Baron is more or less synonym for a red Fokker Dr.1 "Driedecker". However van Richthofen scored only 19 from his 80 victories with a Fokker Dr.1. In most cases this Dr.1 was not even painted (overal) red. From the seven Fokker Dr.1s, from which it is know he has flown them, only two were painted completely red.
The best known one is of course the 425/17, the aircraft in which he scored his last two victories and in which was killed. The other one is the 152/17 which originally only had red struts, wheel covers, tail and upper wing, like most Dr.1s von Richthofen flew. Later the 152/17 was painted overall red like the 425/17.
When the 152/17 was on display in the Berlin Züghaus Museum is was completely red.
I have painted the 152/17 as it originally looked, which is very similar to most of the Fokker D.1s von Richthofen flew.
For those who want it: Its available in the file library.
